Africa Network

Our highly successful Africa Roundtable: Setting an African Agenda for the Obama administration - Suggestions from the Diaspora - will be shown Monday, Feb. 16 at 9:30 a.m. on Manhattan Neighborhood Network, channel 34.

You can stream it on the web from www.mnn.org - click on channel 34 on the lower left hand side of the page.

The speakers - Milton Allimadi, Rosalind McLymont, Sowore Omoyele - offered three solid perspectives and a lively exchange followed with the audience.

We hope to get DVDs of this evening duplicated soon. In the meantime, hope to see everyone at our film screening of "Throw Down Your Heart" - Bela Fleck, an American musician, crosses Africa to record with some of the top musical artists in Tanzania, Uganda, Mali and The Gambia. The footage is glorious and the music unforgetable. See Malian diva Oumou Sangare informally at home and in the studio. Join us for this special screening on Mar. 11 at Global Information Network.
